This Rainbow Dash automaton will rainboom your brain!

Ok, wow. All I can say about this is, 'Wow.' What you're looking at is 120 hours of hard work that was done to carve this Rainbow Dash hand-cranked automaton. From mane to tail she is carved from Phillipine Mahogany, as is the base, and Tank, her pet tortoise. The two characters were then painted with enamel and top coated with flat lacquer.

Rainbow Dash sold for over $475 on eBay, and I hope to see more like her. Oh man.. If I ever caught wind of a Rarity one I'd be in loads of trouble. If you'd like to see more of his work, he goes by renegadecow on deviantART. He has made an awesome Rarity shirt, so I suggest you check it out!
